“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.” – Meg Cabot
This quote has been on my mind a lot lately. I’m getting close to the point to either start querying for the first time or self-publishing. Either option has its pros and cons, as well as seems intimidating. As I try to perfect my MS, I’m constantly wondering: Are people going to like this? Is it good enough? Should I make my heroine a little more insecure or make her ooze confidence? I jump from blog to blog looking for the right answer and you wanna know what I discovered? There is no right answer. Yes, there are the rules you have to follow. Proper spelling, punctuation, capitalization, etc. As far as the story goes though, you’re the artist. This is your lump of clay, blank canvas, raw ingredients. How you spin them together is on you and how you think it should be done.
